Anti-government protests broken up in Yemen and Algeria


www.bbc.co.uk

Anti-government rallies in the capitals of Algeria and Yemen, inspired by events in Egypt, have been broken up.

Riot police in Algiers dispersed thousands of people who had defied a government ban to demand that President Abdelaziz Bouteflika step down.

A similar march in Yemen's capital, Sanaa, calling for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to leave office was attacked by government supporters.

Egypt's Hosni Mubarak stepped down on Friday after 18 days of mass protests.

Isn't this how the Mubarak regime first dealt with the Egyptian protestors? If the Alegerians, and Yemenis demonstrators can have the same, peaceful and resolute attitudes these events could repeat themselves all the way around the world changing it forever.

It certainly looks as if they do have the resilience judging by this quote, "We've broken the wall of fear, this is only a beginning," said Fodil Boumala, one of the founders of the National Co-ordination for Change and Democracy.

"The Algerians have won back their capital."

Egypt has set the template, peaceful, consistent and mass pressure. If the population really have had enough of their government then there is not a lot the government can do in the long run except step down.

Yes - especially if that quote about losing the fear is indicative of the general attitude. I will be watching with interest to see how this develops.

There's agreat thread re the Mayan Calender Mayan Calendar Thread which I know nothing about really. My jaw hit the floor when a member posted yesterday's Tzolkin date which was Tone 1 (unity) - Sun Sign - Crocodile. The Egyptians annointed their Pharaohs with crocodile fat and the Egyptian word for crocodile is Messeh - the root of Messiah.

Then I had a wee look at today's and its Tone 2 (Duality) Sun Sign - Wind. It says, 'Wind is the power behind the movement of natural cycles such as weather, erosion, and cultural change.’

Tomorrow's is Tone 3 (Action) Sun Sign - Night.

Methinks the Algerians and Yeminis will pull through with the same solid determination as the Egyptians. The genie is out the bottle - the fear is gone.

Yesss
